These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The People's Court
Dude, Not Funny!: At least once in the original Wapner version – the case involved some sensitive issues – a small number of observers were chuckling at one of the litigant's answers. Wapner paused and (sternly) told the observers to knock it off or he'd have them escorted out.
Moment of Awesome: One for Curt Chaplin. Typically, the defendant and plaintiff are given time for a brief Q&A afterwards, with whoever lost going first. One rude losing defendant insulted Judge Milian's intelligence right out of the gate, to which Chaplin dismissed him immediately.
